Bright weaving object seen passing from WSW to ENE in northern Wisconsin

Was out observing the Aurora, and an object traveling from wsw to ene was seen. I thought it may be an iridium flare, but it did not dim. It traveled at a relatively constant speed, but it jumped, hesitated and weaved as it traveled eastward. It was not a meteor, no trail or pieces breaking off. I thought it might be a tumbling satellite, but it seemed way to bright. It made no sound. I watched it til it disappeared over the horizon. Very strange object. I spend a lot off time looking skyward, using my telescope, watching and photographing the aurora, but i have never seen an objectlike this.
